Game of Thrones writer, George R.R. Martin has revealed that he is developing some new shows for HBO, in addition to the Game of Thrones prequels he is already working on.
In a new interview with The Guardian, Martin said that as well as working with HBO on the five different Game of Thrones prequels, he is developing “a couple of other shows for HBO” adding that he “can’t talk about them yet.”
Martin is additionally working as an executive producer on Who Fears Death and the superhero series Wild Cards.
Speaking about all the varying projects, Martin said: “It’s all fun, but there are days when I feel a little dizzy. It’s a good problem to have.”
The writer also revealed that when he began writing Game of Thrones, he thought it was going to be a short story. “When I began, I didn’t know what the hell I had. I thought it might be a short story; it was just this chapter, where they find these direwolf pups. Then I started exploring these families and the world started coming alive..it was all there in my head, I couldn’t write it. So it wasn’t an entirely rational decision, but writers aren’t entirely rational creatures.”
In the interview, Martin also spoke about the conclusion to the Game of Thrones novel – The Winds of Winter – which fans have been eagerly anticipating for a long time, admitting that he has “been struggling with it for a few years.”
